View Full Version : 10th annual FENCEATHON

-31st August 2009, 19:02
10 years ago, myself and Ray G. of the Chesapeake Fencing Club in Baltimore had a thought...let's have an all-night-long fencing event, a sort of cross between a benefit 5K and an old style dance marathon, to raise funds for CFC and a noteworthy charity. We talked about it, but never did it...then one day, we decided, let's give this a shot. That was a decade ago and now we're ready to celebrate our 10th anniversary as the Chesapeake Fencing Club presents our FENCEATHON to benefit the educational programs of CFC (www.chesapeakefencing.com) and the Sisters Academy of Baltimore (http://sistersacademy.org), an independent Catholic middle school for girls (grades 58) from low income neighborhoods in Baltimore, Maryland. The FENCEATHON will be held in the gymnasium of the Liberty Christian School at 11303 Liberty Road in Owings Mills. Registration 7-8 p.m. with fencing beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 16th and continuing until 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17th. Highlights include electrical fencing in all three weapons (foil, saber, epee), swordplay demonstrations, door prizes, food/refreshments, music, videos, etc. Registration for participating fencers is $30 and includes 10th anniversary commemorative t-shirt. Call 410-532-7445.
